Step by Step

Opening the material database

  • Launch JobControl® software on your computer
  • Select "Settings" → “Material Template Setup Ctrl+M"
  • The materials database should open

Open the menu via the gear icon

  • To start, click on the gear symbol, then click on “Import from File” and select the file of your choice.
  • If  the file name already exists, simply create a copy or overwrite the existing file.


Our suggestion:

We recommend the first option (create a copy), because this prevents loss of information. Remember, you can always adjust the parameters at any given time.
